Now, really, are we supposed to make due with only one favorite book? I prefer Megan Halpern’s take on the topic over at MobyLives:
In fact, now is the time to buy books. Spending $25 on a hardcover goes a long way: a book is something to own, cherish, share, and read over and over again. A far more sound entertainment investment than a night at the movies, or dinner out on the town (although both things that I won’t be giving up either!). So support your local bookstores and show the Baltimore Sun that we haven’t forgotten how much of a treasure a book is.
